I am going a little off task here to share a recipe with you all. It was so tasty I had to share it with you...
I hope you had a great fourth of July here in the U.S. If you are somewhere else in the world, I hope you had a great weekend. My son and I went camping and invented the following recipe for Shish-ka-bobs done like fajitas with grilled tortillas. You have to try this! I know this doesn't have anything to do with assistive technology, but folks in AT need and deserve some good food too!
My son is 6 and he calls them "Shish-ka-bombs." Seeing that they were made on the U.S. day of independence and patriotism, maybe his recipe title isn't too far off!
Here it is:
"Shish-ka-bomb" Fajita Wraps
Cut and cube all ingredients below to fit on skewers. I made the amounts to serve the 2 of us -we pretty well cleaned it all up!
1 Rib eye steak or 2 chicken breasts
1 red bell pepper
1 half a white onion
1 green bell pepper
Handful of cherry tomatoes
8 mushrooms quartered
1 red apple cored, peeled and cubed
1 packet of dry fajita seasoning or a bottle of teriyaki sauce.
1 package of flour tortillas
Salsa, cilantro, avacado, sour cream, shredded cheese for toppings.
Marninate cubed meat in a zip-lock bag several hours with fajita packet mixture or teriyaki sauce. (we used teriyaki sauce for ours). If you use wood skewers, soak them first so they don't catch fire!
Place ingredients on skewers and lay across grill. At the end of the final turn when a set of skewers are almost done, lay a tortilla over the top of a set of three skewers and let it warm. The tortilla should puff up into a little basket shape and toast a little. Depending on how hot the fire is, 2 minutes or so should be plenty.
When done, slide the shish-ka-bombs off onto the tortilla, serve with salsa, chopped cilantro, and avacado. Use sour cream, shredded cheese, as an option. My son is allergic to dairy so we skipped these ingredients.
This is fun to do as a party meal. Allow guests to build their own shish-ka-bomb and lay on the grill, lay their tortilla over at the end and fix their own fajita. It goes great with fresh fruit and some raspberry iced tea!
I hope you will try this fun and tasty summer treat!
All the best to you!
